Both the groups use Yale University Investments Office June 2003 high performance adhesives while the company is not just associated with the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these client groups. There are 2 types of items that are being sold to these possible markets; anaerobic adhesives and instantaneous adhesives. We would be focusing on the consumers of instant adhesives for this analysis since the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Yale University Investments Office June 2003 compared to that of instant adhesives.

Nevertheless, the customer is not rate sensitive or brand name mindful so launching a low priced dispenser under Yale University Investments Office June 2003 name is not a recommended alternative.
Yale University Investments Office June 2003 is not just a producer of adhesives but enjoys market management in the instantaneous adhesive market. The business has its own competent and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the company's network of 250 suppliers for assisting in the sale of adhesives.
Core proficiencies are not limited to adhesive production only as Yale University Investments Office June 2003 also focuses on making adhesive dispensing devices to facilitate the use of its products. This double production technique provides Yale University Investments Office June 2003 an edge over competitors because none of the competitors of giving equipment makes instant adhesives. Additionally, none of these competitors sells straight to the customer either and utilizes distributors for reaching out to clients.

It should also be kept in mind that the distributors are showing hesitation when it comes to offering equipment that needs servicing which increases the obstacles of selling equipment under a particular brand name.

Provided the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Yale University Investments Office June 2003 high-end product line, sales cannibalization would absolutely be impacting Yale University Investments Office June 2003 sales earnings if the adhesive devices is offered under the business's brand name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Yale University Investments Office June 2003 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible risk which could reduce Yale University Investments Office June 2003 income if Case Study Help is launched under the business's brand. The truth that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for introducing a dispenser which can highlight the truth that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instantaneous adhesive.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or price consciousness which offers us 2 extra factors for not launching a low priced item under the business's brand name.

Possible hazards in devices dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of producing brand name awareness in not only immediate adhesives but also in giving adhesives as none of the market players has managed to place itself in double abilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The danger of substitutes in the immediate adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic pointer applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles.
